Status: Still Missing
Disappeared: Season 3 Episode 10 “The Springfield Three”
18 year old Stacy McCall was last seen in Springfield, Missouri on June 7, 1992. She mysteriously vanished from her friend’s house along with friend Suzanne Streeter and Suzanne’s mother Sherrill Levitt.
Stacy McCall was born on April 23, 1974 to parents Janis and Stu McCall. She has two older sisters.
During second grade, Stacy McCall became friends with Suzanne Streeter, whose family lived in Springfield, Missouri. When she turned eleven, her family moved out of the state before moving back a couple of years later.
Stacy was a senior at Kickapoo High School in Springfield, Missouri. During the last semester of school she rekindled her old friendship with Suzanne.
After graduation she planned to enroll at Southwest Missouri State University and go through sorority rush.
Stacy was employed as a secretary/receptionist at Springfield Gymnastics, and occasionally modeled wedding dresses for The Total Bride, a shop owned by family friends in the Brentwood Center.
On the afternoon of June 6, 1992, Suzanne attended the Kickapoo High School graduation ceremony held at the Missouri State University’s Hammons Student Center in Springfield, Missouri.
When the graduation ceremony ended, Stacy celebrated with her family, having dinner and taking pictures outside.
Stacy told her mother that she intended to go to some parties with her friend Suzanne Streeter that evening. She would later spend the night at a hotel in Branson, Missouri before going to the Whitewater theme park with friends the next day.
At 8:30 pm, Stacy and Suzanne arrived at a friend’s party on Coach Drive in Battlefield, Missouri.
At 10:00 pm, Stacy called home and told her mother that she wouldn’t be driving to Branson after all, saying she was going to spend the night at her friend Janelle Kirby’s house in Springfield instead.
In the early morning hours of June 7, 1992, Stacy and Suzanne arrived at another friend’s party in the 1500 block of East Hanover Street in Springfield. They arrived around 1:30 am, but the party was cut short when a neighbor called the police.
While they initially planned to spend the night at Janelle Kirby’s house, they decided it was too crowded as Janelle’s relatives from out of town were already sleeping in her bedroom.
The two friends decided to head back to Suzanne’s residence where they would try out her new king-size waterbed. They drove in separate vehicles, and presumably returned to the residence around 2:15 am.
In the morning, their friend Janelle grew concerned when Stacy and Suzanne failed to contact her about their plans to spend the day at the Whitewater theme park in Branson.
When no one answered calls to Suzanne’s residence, Janelle decided to head over to her house, and arrived shortly after noon. The house was unlocked, but she found no signs of her two friends or Suzanne’s mother.
On June 8, 1992, Stacy’s family filed a missing persons report to the Springfield Police Department.
Police found no signs of struggle at the house. The only thing amiss was a broken porch light cover. The television was left on and the family dog, a Yorkshire Terrier named Cinnamon, was found alone inside the house.
Each woman had a car, and all three vehicles were still parked still in the driveway. Sherrill’s blue Corsica was in the carport, Suzanne’s red Ford Escort was in the circle drive with Stacy’s Toyota Corolla parked behind.
Keys to the vehicles were found inside the unlocked house, and the three women’s purses were found piled together at the foot of the steps leading into Suzanne’s sunken bedroom.
Sherrill and Suzanne, both heavy smokers, left their cigarettes and lighters inside the house, and Stacy’s migraine medication was left behind. An undisturbed graduation cake was also found in the refrigerator.
Stacy’s flowered shorts with her jewelry tucked into the pockets was found placed on her sandals beside Suzanne’s waterbed. Police believe she left the home wearing only a T-shirt and panties.
On June 15, 1992, police released the composite sketch of an unidentified transient man with long hair and a full beard. In the days leading up to the woman’s disappearance, neighbors reported seeing the man near the house.
On June 24, 1992, a waitress at George’s Steakhouse, one of Levitt’s favorite restaurants, told police she saw the three women at the diner that morning between 1:00 and 3:00 am. The waitress said Suzanne appeared intoxicated, and her mother was trying to calm her down.
On January 2, 1993, an anonymous individual called the “America’s Most Wanted” program, appearing to hold prime knowledge in the women’s disappearance, but the call was cut short when the switchboard operator tried to patch it through to Springfield investigators.
Robert Craig Cox
42 year old Robert Craig Cox, an Army veteran serving time in a Texas prison for aggravated robbery, was identified as a possible suspect in the case.
At the time of the women’s disappearances, Cox lived in Springfield and was working as an underground utilities worker. He was also previously employed as a mechanic at the same workplace as Stacy’s father.
Cox told police that he attended church with his girlfriend on the morning of June 7, 1992. In 1995, he recanted his initial statement when police found out he lied, but he continually denied any involvement in the case.
During an interview in 1996, Cox proceeded to tell a Springfield journalist that the three women were dead and buried somewhere near Springfield. However, he refused to say their location.
Cox had been previously convicted in the murder of a 19 year old woman in Florida in 1978. His conviction was later reversed by the Florida Supreme Court due to lack of evidence.
Cox has never been charged in connection with the women’s disappearances but remains a person of interest.
Foul play is strongly suspected in Stacy McCall’s disappearance and authorities believe she was abducted. A $42,000 reward remains in place for information that leads to the location and prosecution of the persons responsible for the abduction of the three women.
In 1997, a bench was dedicated to the women in the Victims Memorial Garden in Springfield’s Phelps Grove Park. Stacy’s parents vowed that they will not declare their daughter dead until her body is found.
The circumstances of Stacy McCall’s disappearance remain unclear and her case is currently classified as missing. Her case remains unsolved.
